Biomimetic Antireflective Surfaces for Improved Lighting Efficiency

Biomimetic research is leading to nanostructured surfaces that minimize reflections for more efficient photovoltaic and illumination systems. When presented with complex challenges, scientists and engineers often look to the natural world for inspiration– asking “how does nature solve this problem?” Eons of evolutionary development have resulted in remarkable natural capabilities: frictionless motion through water, aerodynamic wings that reduce…
